Yes

A brief description of the postconsumer food waste composting program:

We are currently in a pilot test with one dining operation sending all compostable scrap to our central facility. We also have six residence halls involved with composting pizza boxes. Between the central facility, pizza boxes and the pilot location we are diverting 11,000 – 12,000 lbs. a week from landfill to compost. We will be expanding the composting program to include additional locations, including event concessions.
